Apple N’ Greens Kids Smoothie

Apple N' Greens Smoothie

Smoothies have been a great go-to lunch option lately! Of course, I’ll admit sometimes it is much easier to throw together a quick sandwich or hotdog but most of the time I try to be more healthy and my son is my biggest motivation for that! So…GREENS! Super hard to get kids to eat, right?! Turn to smoothies, it will work! Even smoothies that are visibly green or maybe even a little gross looking are some of the tastiest smoothies! Throw some spinach or something in a smoothie and you really can’t even tell at all! Needless to say, don’t even mention that it’s in there and they won’t even know!

I whipped up this one the other day, kind of just trying to use stuff I had around the house. I realized that for some reason I have never used apples in a smoothie before. I don’t know why because it sounds great to me!

What to use:

-half of an apple (peeled and cored)

-one banana

-handful of kale

-favorite yogurt of your choice (if making a baby smoothie, use whole milk yogurt. I use Stonyfield YoBaby)

-Splash of coconut water

-ice

 

Add everything to the blender and blend well!!

I accidentally used way to much kale this time so it was pretty chunky :-/┬áSurprisingly enough, Sawyer gobbled it down anyway! Works for me! (By the way, I did not use all of the kale in the picture! Just use one stalk or so…that would be waaay excessive :P)

Try this one out, the apples are great in it!

Enjoy ­čÖé

Simple Strawberry Banana Baby Smoothie

My new thing lately has been baby smoothies! I’ve been making them for Sawyer and I for lunch now and then and it’s so easy and delicious! Most importantly, I can pack in some extra nutrients that Sawyer may not eat by itself! I am also absolutely loving his new Sili squeeze pouch that I got him specifically for smoothies. It works so perfectly and he can feed himself this way. Except for the fact that I have to take it away from him while gulping it so that he doesn’t get brain freeze! ­čśŤ

I just wanted to share this smoothie that I made the other day because it is so simple and quick to make.
